AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday expressed unhappiness over CBI court verdict in the Babri Masjid demolition case. While delivering the judgement, CBI judge SK Yadav said that no conclusive proof has been established against the accused. The court acquitted all the 32 accused, including BJP veterans L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi, Uma Bharti, Vinay Katiyar, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Kalyan Singh and others.
The ‘kar sevaks’ razed the 16th-century mosque on December 6, 1992, as they believed that the mosque in Ayodhya stood on an ancient Ram temple.
While addressing the media, Owaisi said that justice has been denied in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. While expressing his views on the Babri Masjid demolition case verdict, the AIMIM MP said it is a sad day in the history of Indian judiciary.
“Now, the court says there was no conspiracy. Please enlighten me, how many days of months of preparations are required to disqualify an action from being spontaneous?” Owaisi said.
Meanwhile, Congress asked the Centre to appeal against the acquittal of the accused. The grand old party said the Special CBI Court verdict in the Babri case runs counter to a Supreme Court judgement and constitutional spirit.
Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “The decision of the Special Court to acquit all the accused in the Babri Masjid demolition case runs counter to the Supreme Court judgement as also the Constitutional spirit.”
“Every Indian, who has innate faith in the Constitution as also in the spirit of communal amity and brotherhood, expects and urges the Central and the state governments to file an ‘appeal,’ against the decision of the Special Court founded in error and follow the letter of the law and the Constitution, without any partiality and pre-meditated prejudice,” he said.
In a landmark judgment, the Supreme Court in 2019 delivered its verdict in the Ram Janmbhoomi-Babri Masjid land dispute case and paved the way for the construction of a Ram Temple by a Trust at the disputed site in Ayodhya.
